Knowing about farm names can be important because in some regions, principally Eastern Gelderland and Overijssel, people used the name of the farm as their surname. They changed their name to the name of the new farm when they moved.

A book that discusses farm names is:

Wijk, Vincentius van. Boerderijnamen: over hun Oorsprong, Geschiedenis en Betekenis (Farm Names: Their Origin, History and Meaning). Leiden: E. J. Brill, 1948. (FHL book 949.2 H2w; film 1183590 item 8.)
